Well guys, it’s finally here. For the past 11 years we have seen many MCU movies, some great, some mediocre. Just think, all of this started with the first Iron Man movie back in 2008 and look how far we’ve come and how big this franchise has become. All other 21 MCU movies, from Iron Man to The Avengers to Infinity War, have led to this one film. Enough rambling, let’s get to the review. So, Avengers: Endgame is the latest installment of Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. It takes place right after the events of Avengers: Infinity War with our heroes dealing with the aftermath of what just happened. In case you don’t remember, for some odd reason, here’s what happened at the end of Infinity War. So basically Thanos gets all 6 infinity stones and then snaps his fingers wiping out half of the universe. Among the dead were Buckey, Black Panther, Falcon, Groot, Scarlet Witch, Mantis, Drax, Star Lord, Dr. Strange, Spiderman, Agent Hill, and Nick Fury. So basically this movie continues right after and our characters are trying to find a way to fix it. This will be a Spoiler free review, and I’m going to try to keep it as vague as possible because there’s a lot that goes down.
Basically to put it simply, this was an amazing film, possibly the best out of the entire MCU. The pacing is a lot better than infinity war, although Endgame is longer in length. There are some “slow” parts, but those scenes were used for great character development. Not to hate on Infinity War, but Endgame handles the characters better, granted that there are less of them but the point still stands. Weirdly enough as well, I enjoyed Captain Marvel in Endgame more than I did in her actual movie. I didn’t hate Captain Marvel, but it definitely was a mediocre type movie. The plot of this film is great, it went in a direction that I never saw coming and I loved it. The final battle of this movie though was one of the best throw downs I’ve seen in film. It makes Infinity War and Civil War look like generic comic book movies. There was a lot of fan service moments in it, it was just amazing. It was a really great sequence all together and I’ll get to more detail in my Spoiler review.
The only gripe I have with this movie is how Thor and Banner are handled, but again I’ll get into more detail in the Spoiler review.
Overall, I thought this was a great film. It is easily my favorite out of all MCU movies and it brings everything together in full circle. It’s kind of sad honestly. Although there’s more MCU movies coming, this marks the end of an era.
